IMAP, Outlook XP and Entourage

I have Outlook XP on Windows XP setup to connect to my IMAP server and view e-mail.  This works fine.

However, I setup MS Entourage on Mac OS X to connect to the same IMAP server, and it works BETTER.  Here's why:

When I first connected with XP, the only folder shown was Inbox.  When I connected with OSX, it created the following folders:

Deleted Items
Drafts
Sent Items

And it has a "preferences" panel that allows you to use these folders as you'd expect.  With Outlook XP, when I delete or move a message from my Inbox, it simply puts a line through it.  Is there anyway to make XP emulate the behavior of Entourage?

Thanks,

Matt

I have my Compuserve account attached to my Outlook here @ work and i understand your pain.

When I archive, the deleted go away (i'm sure thats covered in one of the many links above)

Additionally, I customized my toolbar and added the "Purge Deleted Messages" button to the toolbar.  ONce done reading & deleting, I just have two more clicks to go!

Once to purge, & once to confirm.

Unfortunately, I have not been able to get rid of the struckout messages any other way than the above

Hope this helps
